AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Texans still recovering from the devastating 2011 drought have an online tool for information on water supplies and disaster assistance.

Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples on Tuesday announced the one-stop portal called "The Water Source."

Staples says the site combines drought information from various agencies and provides the basics of Texas water policy. Details are also available on reservoir levels and statewide drought conditions.

Experts have said the historic drought cost the state at least $7.6 billion in agricultural losses.
